In the ever-evolving realm of website design, it's essential to keep pace with the latest trends. However, some fundamental principles remain constant: a successful website must be both user-friendly and visually appealing. We recently reviewed over 100+ websites in the building, construction and interiors industry to put together this guide on our Top 10 Websites that we think nail both these requirements.

In this guide, we'll take a closer look at what we deem to be some of the most impressive building industry websites of 2023, highlighting what sets them apart from the rest and providing you with inspiration for your own website. Our criteria for assessing the websites was usability, aesthetics, and uniqueness.

Whether you're creating a new website from scratch or revamping an existing one, read on to view inspiration to help take your building industry website to the next level.

Industry: Building Services

Visit site, a property management company that leverages technology to create innovative solutions for owners and tenants, has a website that is both aesthetically pleasing and forward-thinking. The site features subtle animations that grab users’ attention without being too distracting.

One design element worth highlighting is the animation on the hero section of the homepage - the building illustration appears to shimmer, and upon closer inspection, you can see this is achieved through the intermittent flashing of letters spelling "AVITA." This elegant detail sets the website apart, demonstrating the importance of achieving uniqueness through animations without overwhelming users.

This website does an impressive job of presenting a wealth of information and case studies in an engaging and approachable manner. We were impressed with the site’s attention to detail, incorporating subtle animations, tasteful design elements, and good use of white space.

Employing color blocking as a navigational aid, the site guides users to their desired sections, and its unobtrusive animations add engagement without overwhelming. We see this site as a case study in the art of restrained design, ensuring that users can effortlessly and efficiently navigate its content. Keep in mind when designing your site - sometimes less is more!

While some might argue that industries of this nature (structural engineering for industrial clients) traditionally have more conservative websites to resonate with their audience, we believe this site exemplifies a modern approach that still resonates with the target demographic. So if you think your industry is too conservative for a modern website, take a look at this site to glean some inspiration.

We ranked this website for its ability to infuse the emotion and design aesthetics typically associated with designers and architects into a website for home builders. We particularly enjoyed how the emotive copywriting was paired perfectly with immersive interactions.

While the site’s interactions may be subtle like others we find in this industry, they seamlessly integrate into the dreamy and inspirational vibes of the site, which immerses visitors in the dream of building a new home. The inclusion of the spinning globe map feature was superb, and despite the site's numerous immersive elements, the designers importantly kept the remainder of the site fairly simple, striking a crucial balance in its overall design.

When relating this site back to your design, you can think of how to incorporate emotive copy with engaging animations, and also remember if you are going to go for immersive elements of your site, keep the rest of the site simple.
